South Derry GAA side Slaughtneil were successful in retaining their Ulster title yesterday, when they defeated Cavan Gaels in the Senior Final.
The game played in Athletic Grounds, Armagh ended with a score of 1-15 to 0-10.
The club has been extremely successful in the past few years, in both the Senior Ladies and Men's divisions, now completing the 'double treble':
In both 2016 and now 2017, they were Ulster Hurling, Football and Camogie Senior Champions.
Their Senior ladies also went on to become All Ireland Camogie Champions last season.
The Double Treble and an All Ireland in just the space of 2 years!! What more can be said pic.twitter.com/W5POH32C8d— Slaughtneil GAC (@GACSlaughtneil) November 26, 2017
Slaughtneil's Captain, Chrissy McKaigue took to social media to share the club's victory:
In 2016/17 our club hurlers and footballers have played a total of 27 championship games. We have won 25 of them. We look forward collectively to the next set of challenges after Christmas. Time for a few days off! #Slaughtneil— Chrissy McKaigue (@CKaigue) November 26, 2017
